Filtering Link Data
Filter Slices are predefined filters that you can use to filter the link detail table with one click. The default Filter Slices allow you to filter your report
Saving Your Own Slice
You can create and save your own filter slices too. Filter in the link detail table for the desired metrics and settings and create a new slice with “New Slice – Save Slice“.
Example: You exclusively want to see links, which have the anchor text “auto insurance” and which are FOLLOW links and text links. Set the filters according to your needs in the link detail table.
When you are done filtering, create a new slice by choosing a name and click on „Save Slice“.
You will find the new slice in “Stored Slices”. If you want to use the filter now, you just have to click on it and the link detail table will adjust.
You have the option to filter my multiple metrics directly in the link detail table.
Example: You only want the “.com” or “.co.uk” links to display in the chart? Enter “.com” in the search box.
Then, click on the filter funnel next to the search box and enter “.co.uk” in the search box.
If you click on “AND”, you can select either “AND“ or “OR“, then select “OR“.
After the entry, you get a list including all links, which end with either “.com” or “.co.uk”. You are able to combine the multilevel filter as you please. Do you only want to include links that start with, end with or equal a special link text?
After entering the filter (here: starts with “auto insurance”) you receive another list:
Depending on the selected metric you can continue to filter or reject your results as you please. Moreover, you have the option to filter by link type or simply by link status:
In the link detail table, you also can save multiple URLs as ”favorites” to manage and analyze them later on. To add a URL to the favorites, simply use the “Star” symbol next to the URL in the link detail table, or tick the wanted URLs and use the additional functions at the end of the chart.
You can, of course, delete the links that are no longer needed and keep your favorites up to date. The menu item “Favorites” takes you to the summary page from where you can start further analyses or you can work off your list of saved URLs.
